The folks of Nissan have a couple of interesting technologies up their sleeves and some of them are about to be converted from the world of vehicles to mobile handsets. One of them is the Scratch Shield self-repairing paint, that can repair light scratches in a week.
This technology was recently licensed to NTT DoCoMo, Japan’s largest wireless carrier. The company will use the clearcoat, based on a special top layer of elastic resin to protect its handsets from scratches. Turns out that 80% of surface damages can be prevented thanks to the flexible coating.
